Plenary on Revisiting Putting Africa First: the Making African Innovation Systems

  • Written by  Boitumelo Bodibe

Presentation by Prof Mammo Muchie at the 8th Globelics Conference.

"We have shifted from science to research. Science is certainity; Research is uncertainity. Science  is supposed to be cold, straight and detached; research is warm, involving and risky. Science puts an end to the vagaries of human disputes; Research fuels controversies by more controversies." …Bruno Latour. We need to build research capacity systematically in Africa.. Africa actually fits well with Bruno Latour’s idea of research-warm, involving and risky!

    I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required to get setup?
    I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% positive.
    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi, Neat post. There's a problem with your website in internet explorer, may check
    this? IE still is the marketplace leader and a large
    component to other people will miss your great writing due to this problem.

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though
    you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away
    your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?
